Is there a RMS Bearing 7 fix?

I just bought a 996 with low miles and I decided to go ahead and correct the IMS. I also read about bearing #7 causing wear (see below).  

Is there a fix on the market yet for the RMS #7 bearing?

      “As the bearing begins to wear, RMS failure can occur at any time. Replacement of the seal is simple as the part is relatively inexpensive, but because it requires engine removal the labor can be cost prohibitive when it becomes a regular occurrence. Bearing 7 has been known to wear excessively due to an out of round crank and leading to expensive crankshaft related repairs.”

I appreciate any help and advice.
